Chapter 1467: Li Chen’s Honesty

Li Chen looked at Yun An, feeling startled. He took a step forward and grabbed his hand. His heart ached badly. His Yun An was so good. Yun An was so good. The back of his hand was cold as ice as if his heart had also been drowning in ice-cold water. It was like ants were biting on it and bringing him great torture.
Yun An widened his eyes and looked at Li Chen. “Am I silly?”
“Do you know why he did not publicize his relationship with you and no one knows about the two of you dating?”
“I don’t know,” Yun An said. “I am a fool. I felt that he had done enough. I never thought about seeing his social circle nor his family members. I thought that his family would be against him loving men, so I did not bother asking or knowing more. I shut my eyes and felt that he was enough. But he died, and then I lost everything.”
Yun An was feeling really bad. “Perhaps, I had been silly. Big Brother Gu had already died, and I could not ask anymore. He had never publicized our relationship. Could it be that I am not so important in his heart…”
“You are wrong,” Li Chen said. “He wanted to protect you.”
“Yun An, when he liked you, the timing was not right. Ghost City was beginning to fight for power, and there was chaos. The two younger brothers had their own concerns, and everyone had their own ideas. Even though the brothers acted respectfully towards one another, he felt some danger. The enemies that Ghost City had offended were all hard to deal with. Since they were young, he had been brought up as a successor. He had to learn how to keep personal feelings aside and care most about Ghost City’s benefits. During that period of time, he kept being targeted for assassinations. In fact, he even suspected his own family members. Although now it has proven that there is nothing to do with his family members, under those circumstances at that year, every small trace of evidence pointed to his own brother. He did not dare to let anyone else know that he has a weakness. Perhaps, his younger brother knows, but he had never exposed him or disturbed him about it. That was why you could have a comfortable life with him in these five years.”
Li Chen took a deep breath and held in the aching pain in his heart. He did not know how to speak about that matter. In fact, he was desperate. He had messed up the whole situation. If only Yun An did not know about him.
If only he had never known about it.
“I thought that I could hide this from you in my entire life.”
If it was a lie, why wouldn’t it be a form of happiness for Yun An to say that it would be for his entire life?
He never felt that Yun An was not important. Yun An was too important. In fact, it made him not know what to do. Li Chen held in the aching pain in his heart.
“I… he does not want to return to Ghost City anymore.
“He has been thinking about how good it would be to live with you and grow old together if he could one day leave Ghost City. He would not live so dangerously, and his life would not be so stressful. How happy it would be to do what he liked. There are many issues within Ghost City. The closer one is to the center of power, the more dangerous it is. It is not the same now as it was five years ago. Do you know how many times Gu Yuanli experienced dangers, and how many obstacles were removed by Yang Ping just to achieve the peace in Ghost City now? If it was in the hands of me… my friend, it will take at least three or four more years for Ghost City to obtain the peace that it has today.
“Countless danger, trap, assassinations, hurt, suspicion… He wanted none of this life. Although he had been groomed into a successor since he was very young, he never liked it. Yet, he could not give up on this responsibility. He just wanted to be an artist, a jewelry designer. Ghost City… whatever, those weren’t a part of what he planned to be. So, he didn’t… tell anyone about you.”
